|Put down your drink and swallow your nachos -- it's time to place some prop bets.|
While the Steelers and Packers are preparing for the biggest game of the season, the rest of us must prepare to overeat, over-drink and lose money we don't have on ridiculous prop bets.
Here are some of the better prop bet options for this year's game (all from BoDog).
How Many Times will FOX mention "Brett Favre" on TV during the Game?
Over 2.5: -160
Under 2.5: -120
If you have any savings at all or can sell some plasma or something before kickoff, put everything you have on the Over. Someone thinks that Brett Favre could be mentioned less than two times during an NFL game? Featuring the Packers? I've watched amateur South American soccer matches on TV where he's been mentioned 50 times. Well, that's actually not true. I haven't watched amateur South American soccer matches. But only because I fear they will mention Brett Favre.
How Many Times will FOX mention "Lockout" on TV during the Game?
Over 1.5: -110
Under 1.5: -130
Another incredibly easy bet. We may all be millionaires come Monday. Not only will the biggest story in the NFL as soon as the clock hits zero be mentioned more than once, it will likely be mentioned more than once just in reference to Brett Favre! For example, I like the sound of this sentence: "Let's hope there is a lockout because it's the only way to keep Brett Favre from coming back again."
(By the way, the line on Brett Favre mentions in this column was 1.5. I hope you bet the over.)
How long will it take Christina Aguilera to sing the National Anthem?
Over 1 minute, 54 seconds: -160
Under 1 minute, 54 seconds: +120
Will Christina Aguilera wear a cowboy hat while singing the National Anthem?
Will Christina Aguilera's hair color be anything except completely blonde when she sings the National Anthem?
How long will Christina Aguilera hold the note "Brave" at the end of the National Anthem?
Over 6 seconds: -140
Under 6 seconds: EVEN
Are there any rules preventing the Super Bowl performers from betting on the game? Because Christina Aguilera could make millions singing of the anthem by performing it quickly and in a cowboy hat and black hair.
